Life is Art
PL Precept #1
Every day is a new opportunity to discover something new about our”selves” In my case, the dolls who have come to live with me, are teaching me new ways to enjoy my creative abilities. You can see from the little group that drew me to them on the 20th. at a “by invitation only” preview, that they were a motley lot. The preview was at one of the chain Thrift shops, that officially opened its doors this morning at 8:30a.m.. (The ribbon cutting ceremony, I missed) Why.. I had to have both my eyes redone, this time they used laser.
I digress… back to the dolls each one had to be cleaned and re”strung” (their limbs tightened) This meant taking off their heads and removing all the stuffing. While their heads were off, I cleaned their hair. Normally, I wouldn’t have gone looking for such a task, I had my fill of stuffing toys and doing limbs when I was in the bear making phase.
There is an expression that eludes me at the moment, as I am distracted by the black floaters I have in my eyes, (to be expected, said the specialist) I didn’t have to think about it, I just did it. I had been told there are YouTube videos on how to.. but I just knew. Our brains act like our own memory card, when you need to do something, instinctively you set to it, and it is done.
Much like typing… I’ve typed for years, (touch typing) so I don’t think of how to type, I just do it. The PL Precepts, and Principles, and the training we get in PL, (Perfect Liberty) help us to hone our creativity and skills. For this I am thankful, and appreciate my gray matter and my faith for allowing me to recognize that having God in my life, and living by the Precepts and Principles, enables me to do and achieve the things in life that I want to do.
Challenges and opportunities are gifts. Seeing the transformations, makes me smile, and having the awareness that all I am, and all I do, is a reflection in my commitment to God and living the “PL Way” well.. that makes for a very happy me.
Here it is, another day coming to an end… Friday is just around the corner.. and I have no idea, what us in store for me tomorrow, isn’t that grand. What-ever, I know it will be another wonderful day.

Fourth doll has been adopted I’ll be seeing her again on Monday, meanwhile we are getting ready for Canada Day.. We Celebrate 150 years.
Dolls are American Girl dolls.
Under the sea
are colourful bumble bees
how can that be
in art, the mind is free
to express all that it can “see”

PL Precept # 18 Each moment is a Turning Point
When a dream dies
Once a dream
now a memory
PL Precept # 7 Everything exists in Relativity
Each day is a new canvas.. live it to the fullest
In quiet reflection today, I wanted to transport myself back to the Holy Land (Japan, headquarters) if only one could simply snap one’s fingers and voila.. we would be standing where we wanted to be.
Wanting, wishing, does not make it so. I am where I am, thousands of miles away, different continent, time zone and season.
On my mind this morning, is Rev. Toyomi Hirayama, he was the minister who did the translations for me when I met with Rev. Mitsuo Michishita. Sometimes when we are living a moment we don’t realize just how much that space in time will actually impact our everyday until months later.
Rev. Ise Kouji who I only met during my last visit there, was so kind so thoughtful, always a big smile.Unable to speak English, he still conveyed happiness at sharing and exchanging time with the English visitor.
The minister there from Argentina, Sensi Arthuro Higashigata, it was the same, so friendly and outgoing. We came from all over to attend the celebrations and lectures. The actual physical time was short .. but the learning, and discovery of self, is ongoing.
Faith will shine through, even the darkest of times, Nature will go on with her infinite art forms, and in quiet meditation, I can be “home”

PL Precept #3 God appears through One’s Self.
Thank you for sharing this quiet time with me, love is pure and unconditional, when we LIVE IN PERFECT LIBERTY PL Precept #21
In this little treasure of a book I found yesterday, is a quote .. I had not seen this one before from one of Kahlil Gibran’s writings;.
You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might pray also in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance… Kahlil Gibran
Every day is a new beginning
